Spread the love
If you’re wondering how to travel with kids, you need to take a page out of the Jones’ family book! Ronnie and Amy sold their home, their cars, and almost everything else to take their two boys traveling around the world. They’re visiting as many countries as possible while being transparent through their blog and YouTube channel, showing the behind the scenes of what it’s really like to travel full time with your family.
One story of theirs stood out, and I just had to hear it from them in person. Ronnie and Amy did the 16-day trek to Everest base camp with Ayden and Bastian, who were 9 and 11 years old at the time.
What we talk about in the episode:
Why did they decide to hike to Everest Base Camp as a family?
